FSA Orbit Carbon CF review

This integrated headset is compatible with the 41.8mm Campagnolo standard. The real carbon top cap is around 15g lighter than one made of aluminium, but this is a lot to pay for what amounts to little more than cosmetic appeal.

The real carbon top cap is around 15g lighter than one made of aluminium, but this is a lot to pay for what amounts to little more than cosmetic appeal. Incidentally, their IS-compatible Orbit 1 headset is outwardly similar, but uses an aluminium top cap and costs a more reasonable £35.
